Spirit in the Desert
Virtual Books & Gifts
Spirit in the Desert Bookstore has Gone Virtual!
Our bookstore has joined the “virtual world” … we now offer you a “place” you can shop online so you can get the book in print or on one of your devices! The movement from paper to electronics in the book world has changed drastically in the past few years. Trying to keep an inventory of books that we “think may sell” is more than complicated. In fact, it is downright impossible and financially unstable. That being said, books are still a treasure of knowledge, wisdom, laughter, instruction, exploration for the mind and inspiration for the soul! In other words–we want you to read.
Every month, we will suggest some “books and a few items” that retreat leaders, friends of Spirit in the Desert, etc., have suggested. We’ll touch on devotionals, 3rd Chapter of Life, the Sonoran Desert, local authors, etc. We’ll throw in a few gift items as well, such as pocket labyrinths, prayer stones, desert artists, etc. We hope you will enjoy the suggestions and give them a try. And please … take it a step further and give us your feedback! Your ideas fuel our creativity, too.
A FEW THINGS REMAIN! You may think our best-selling items in the bookstore were books–not so! The original photography greeting cards, postcards, and matted photography by Cyndy Warnier, our Director of Programs & Development, top the list in all sales. They also give people a “taste of the desert” that they can take home from their retreat here…so–these will always remain available for sale in the Estrem Lobby (which is being remodeled). We will also have our printed devotionals, both seasonal, and yearly compilations, by Pastor Steve Holm, available for sale as well.
While we are remodeling, you can find our remaining stock of books for purchase at 50% off! They will be displayed in the Atrium in the Estrem Building. If you are looking for gifts, or reading material for yourself–or books for your church’s bookstore, don’t wait! They won’t last long. Drive on over and find some good bargains for your reading pleasure.
